Subject: Epic win
This is ahead of its time in terms of humor. Or maybe the British were just ahead of us in terms of humor in general? Who is "us"? What country am I from? Where do I currently live? I don't know.

Subject: Well have you?
Old man (who IS this guy?) is back, aloof as ever. This time he's told to watch his meters to watch for water consumption. I loved all the little signs he had up lol..

Exactly so. A bottle, circa 1940s.

Subject: Is that a plastic banana?
He's sucking on some kind of banana-shaped object while reading the paper. Is that a baby bottle or something?
